Atmospheric Science Databases

General Science Databases

Academic Search Ultimate
A multi-disciplinary database which offers information in many areas of academic study, Academic Search Premier focuses on a range of subjects including biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, psychology, religion/theology, and more. This database provides indexing and abstracts for more than 17,000 journals, with full text for more than 10,000 of those titles. 

CQ Researcher
The CQ Researcher publishes reports 44 times a year that offer in-depth single-topic coverage of political and social issues, with regular reports on topics in health, international affairs, education, the environment, technology and the U.S. economy. Each CQ Researcher report is investigated and written by a seasoned journalist. Editors identify the topic to be investigated, then the writer conceives its content, formulating the key questions that it will seek to answer; reads background material; interviews a range of sources; synthesizes available information; and writes the report. The report's writer quotes a range of sources, including lawmakers, academics, interest group representatives, government officials as well as citizens involved in the issue. The report concludes with a bibliography that contains an annotated list of key sources.

Credo Reference
Credo Reference provides access to full-text, aggregated reference content covering a variety of major subject areas. The database contains well over 3,000,000 full-text entries in over 500 reference books, collected from more than 70 publishers. The entries are drawn from encyclopedias, dictionaries, biographies, quotations, and other sources. Credo is designed as a research tool and provides the ability to search, map, save, organize, and cross-reference the information in the collection.

Additional Atmospheric Science Databases and Resources

American Meterological Society Homepage - Contains links to news, career related links, journals, publications and also a student page that continas great resources to travel grant information, fellowships, etc.

American Meterological Society Journal List  - (1945 - present). You can read and search the full text of AMS journals online. AMS has done what few other scientific professional organizations and publishers have ... digitized its entire backrun.

Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene - Is a new open-access scientific journal, that will publish original research reporting on new knowledge of the Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems; interactions between human and natural systemsfocusing on global change. Research will be organized initially into six knowledge domains (Atmospheric Sciences, Earth & Environmental Science, Ecology, Ocen Science, Sustainable Engineering and Sustainability Sciences) embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society

Browsing meteorology books
Many atmospheric science books have the call numbers QC 851 - QC 999 and can be found on Level 1 of the Library (map)
Books can only sit on one shelf, even though they often cover several topics. Documents from the U.S. federal government are arranged by agency, older print journals are in the ARC. Some formats, like maps or microforms, need special shelving and are housed separately. Electronic resources don’t sit on any shelf at all.  All this means it is prudent to use our catalog -- USearch -- and online indexes and databases. The serendipitous finds when browsing the stacks of a large research library can be rewarding, but it is not an efficient way to do research.
